Tasting Notes

Sourced from vineyards in one of New Zealand's premier red wine district, Hawke's Bay, this is a classic Merlot style exhibiting chocolate, mocha, blackcurrant and spice on the nose, with a warm richly textured mouth feel leading to a long persistent finish.

Not only ideal for a summer picnic but also for classic Kiwi summer BBQ!
